Learn How to Access & Apply for the Women’s Entrepreneurship Fund
The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion, announced on October 19, 2018 the Women Entrepreneurship Fund.
“Women still face unique and significant barriers when it comes to starting their own business…The $20-million Women Entrepreneurship Fund is one way to help solve those inequalities, she [Mary Ng] said.
The fund will be available on an application basis for the next two years. Each applicant will be able to request up to $100,000 in non-repayable contribution funding.
Applications by diverse women (including Indigenous women, women with disabilities, recent immigrants, visible minorities and women in rural or remote regions), businesses that deal with Canada’s key economic strategy sectors (advanced manufacturing, agri-food, clean technology, digital industries, health/bio-sciences and resources of the future), or businesses looking to pursue international markets will be given priority.” source
